Residents across the country are still reeling from Sunday’s hurricane. While personal losses are still being tallied, the pockets of motorists will also be battered as an increase in fuel prices is sure to add to the existing woes. As of tonight the cost of premium fuel will once again go up an additional thirty-six cents from nine dollars and thirty-two cents per gallon to nine dollars and seventy-two cents. There will also be a twenty cent hike in the price of regular fuel. The cost per gallon will now read nine dollars and thirty-three cents at the pump. Those driving diesel vehicles will fortunately not feel the additional pinch as the price per gallon remains the same.
